"Coffee and chocolate aromas signal this exotic and fragrant red. The cherry and plum notes are almost afterthoughts, while spice, leather and tobacco flavors come to the fore, with vivid acidity through the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 3,300 cases made.

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a dark garnet color and pretty layers of dried cherry, blackberry, delicate spice, leather and tobacco. There's a soft side to this young Brunello that has been finessed by the oak to render an almost-immediate approach. It looks ready to drink in three years or so, and may require less aging time than many of its peers in this vintage. The wine closes strong with bright acidity and very attractive notes of dark fruit and spice. Some Brunellos call out for a juicy cut of succulent red meat by their side, and this is one of those wines. " -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Warm, toasty aromas of leather, savory herb, hay, fennel, menthol, forest floor and dark berry come together in the glass. The vibrant palate offers layers of red cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and grilled herb. It’s well balanced, with tightly knit but polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2020–2030.
